A driver on the zello channel reported that there is a sting at the airport... he was given 4 tickets....all regulatory in nature. Anyone else experience this?
LOL. I was thinking the same thing about the front seat and hiding devices. Also, ask the rider if you can give him/her a hug before you get back into your car. If they won't let you hug them, at least a handshake!FYI - you can NOT drop off at WCA. The cops there are very uber savy. If they see you and you dont have Z plates they will give you about $2,500 in tickets. You need to have your passenger move to the front seat and act like a friend / family and also loose the phone or anything that makes you look like an uber guy. Also, FYI - the cops there will ping you from King Street right across the state line on their own personal uber app ask you to come to the airport and pick them up - if you fall for that one you are done. They also tow your car.
WCA is not uber friendly
Only those with Z plates doing pick ups in CT can legally drop off at WCA
Let me tell you my friend. After two years doing this and over 10,000 rides I have seen / heard everything.You must be a real creepy looking guy if you think asking for a hug would lead to all that.
I want to see the actual code in the New York State statutes that provide for it.So, can anyone who has stated that an Uber driver can get a $2,500 or other fine for simply dropping off a Connecticut pickup at WCA please provide a link for documentation at a WCA, WC, or other official web site?
Uber CT drivers are not transportation vendors authorized to do business in WC. Only those with Z plates doing rides that originated in CT are legal to drop off at WCA.According to one of the official WCA web pages
All taxis, limousines, car services and other transportation vendors (this should include Uber) are welcome to drop-off passengers at the main terminal. (here's where you can get into trouble) Taxi cruising for passengers and the hailing of unoccupied taxis are not permitted at the airport.
Perhaps this is out-of-date? So, can anyone who has stated that an Uber driver can get a $2,500 or other fine for simply dropping off a Connecticut pickup at WCA please provide a link for documentation at a WCA, WC, or other official web site?
